Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
For the past 20+ years, I have specialized in the field of fertility. Following the American Society for Reproductive Medicine Guidelines, I am available for face-to-face counseling sessions, phone and video-conference consultations. I assist intended parents as they explore their experiences and options for completing their families. I screen egg donor and gestational carrier candidates for private matches, agencies and physicians, as well as stay involved with matches through 2 months post delivery, ensuring the process will transpire smoothly with clear communication and realistic expectations for all.

Karen L Kleckner, M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
